Sun Tzu
0535 - 0496

Chinese military leader, author of The Art of War (c. 510 B.C.)


People in their handlings of affairs often fail when they are about to succeed. If one remains as careful at the end as he was at the beginning, there will be no failure.

Let your plans be dark and as impenetratable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.

c. 510 B.C. - from The Art of War
